Life this winter has just been that little bit more difficult. The shorter days, loss of sunlight, colder temperatures, wet weather, and Level 5 restrictions, all make it hard to stay healthy, eat well and keep fit and flexible.
To address these issues, and help overcome them, Tipperary County Council Library Service has teamed up with Pegasus Consulting and PhysioNow.ie to put together a panel of expert lecturers, physiotherapists and psychologists, to offer a series of key presentations on how to stay energised, nourished, fit and happy for the coming months.
These lectures are free, and will be offered over Zoom. The lectures will run for three Wednesdays this February – 3rd, 17th and 24th – and all at 12.30 p.m.
1. Wednesday 3rd February, at 12.30 p.m.: Winter Wellness (Body) – discusses how to stay energised, nourished, fit and healthy for the coming months. The talk will cover fitness, flexibility and mobility, along with eating well and essential vitamins, and good sleep.
